Academic Coaches will challenge and support students in the identification and achievement of their educational goals as well as in their development as independent thinkers and learners. We seek to communicate what it means to be a member of the Montana Tech community consistent with the university’s mission to maintain academic excellence, prepare students to be socially responsible members of diverse societies, and teach students to use their education to make a positive difference in the world. Our focus is on incoming freshman but our doors are open to all students seeking help.

Who We Are

Directed by Taryn Quayle, Academic Coaches are a select group of students who demonstrate outstanding academic success and student leadership at Montana Tech. The Academic Coaching Center is located within the Academic Center for Excellence in ENG 102 and our phone number is (406) 496-4418.

What We Do

Academic coaches are peers who help students navigate and gain awareness of the Montana Tech registration process and policies, general degree requirements, general education requirements and provide the appropriate referrals to departmental advisers and campus offices (such as Financial Aid, the Registrar, Career Resource Center, etc).

Additionally, academic coaches provide one-on-one coaching to students who wish to work on issues affecting their academic success (i.e. time management, test anxiety, study skills, note-taking techniques, and test preparation).
